Mary is finally in heaven, being with Father God, her just reward, with her husband and family...what a great loss for all of us. Mary was a wonderful woman, in the short time I knew her, she became a good friend and a loving mother-in-law. Mary is at peace, Praise God!
I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother. She was a wonderful person and I will never forget the good times that we all had sitting on the back porch enjoying the wonderful meals that she had prepared and just all being together. Those are memories that I will always cherish.

At last, Mom is at peace. She is happy being with Dad and especially with God and His angels forever!
I am so saddened to learn of the passing of your Mom. We truly understand death when God places His hands upon one whom we love. We must always have old memories and young hopes. My thoughts and prayers remain with the entire Tammaro family.
